Assume there is a contract that was typed on a computer then printed out, and only one party needs to sign it. Examples of such contracts are "sign here to show it's ok for us to contact your references". If a person crossed out part of the contract before signing it, is the contract still valid? Does it matter if they initial any modifications? Here's an example:
This is a legally binding contract.
- You agree to having a background check done
- You will disclose all information about your past employers
- You will eat a rubber duck for breakfast
To agree to these terms, sign bellow:
If I crossed out 3. then signed, is it still valid? Does it matter if I initialed? If there already is your signature on the same page do you still need to initial it?
